This blog is the creation of two long time friends (more years than we care to admit), Sharon and Laura.  We met at Rensselaer (our college).  We are sorority sisters (Phi Sigma Sigma) and Sharon introduced Laura to her husband.  Over the years our lives took different paths to end up in a similar place. We live in neighboring towns, enjoy fun filled, busy lives, and  we both know the pain and devastation of miscarriage.  However it was our friendship and a special bracelet that helped us through the healing from our miscarriages.  Over the years a few things came together…

  • our realization that there was a real need to help women and their families who suffer from miscarriage
  • our questioning “are we doing what we are supposed to be”
  • our desire to making the world a better place (Rensselaer’s motto is “why not change the world”)

We created this blog as a way to provide friends with the confidence and tools to help their friends cope, hope and heal after miscarriage.   We think the way to demystify miscarriage is to encourage people to acknowledge the loss – this way women and their families are not left alone in silence, suffering.  We hope this blog and our website http://www.OurHopePlace.com will help…

    “We think the way to demystify miscarriage is to encourage people to acknowledge the loss – this way women and their families are not left alone in silence, suffering.”

    I am very passionate about that statement. I am 29 and have had 2 miscarriages and one pregnancy which we had to terminate due to major heart, brain and internal organ deformaties. I have always been very open about my experiences, and have since discovered a lot of friends who have also had miscarriages, but not let on about it because they see it as something which shouldn’t be talked about. I am about to venture off and read your posts and look forward to reading about other’s thoughts and experiences after their losses.

    Thankyou for creating a blog and a website to help others.

    I really want to acknowledge what you’re doing. Letting women know that its ok to experience grief for an experience that is often not understood, because the loss can’t be seen by others, is very comforting and supportive. Anything I can do support you in your endeavours please let me know.

    Warmly,
    Louise
